The August Starter Stack

Simple, easy to adopt practices for everyday change

Among our client partners, August may be best known for our unique "Starter Stack".

Our team brings a wide range of expertise to our work. Through our work across all kinds of organizations and teams, we've become experts at translating diverse theory into a vast library of easy to learn and practical tools.

Leaders and teams who have tried our practices are able to see an immediate positive impact in their work.

And, ultimately, these practices help large scale change to stick - not because a perfect 100 page PPT plan, but because people find these practices useful in their day-to-day work.

Included here is a sample of some of our clients' favorite practices. We encourage you to share them with your teams, and get in touch to learn more about how these simple practices can become your key to unlocking lasting transformation.

“August facilitated our C-suite meeting using their practices and new ways of working and at the end of the day we all agreed, hands down, we're never going back to our old ways.” — CMO, Pernod Ricard USA
